People need to pump the brakes on Bishop. He was traded for a 2nd and since then, he's played 20 NHL games with varying degrees of success. He's now 26 years old. The idea of him being a centerpiece for Simmonds or Voracek is laughable.
Ditto Wiercioch. He's a 2nd round pick who's been mediocre in lower levels and all of the sudden because he's had 5 points in his last 3 games while playing the easiest minutes on the Senators, he's supposed to be a headliner in a trade for a power forward who has potted 28 goals and is on pace for a 30-30 season this year or a dynamic #1 RW who's been a point per game over his last 56 games.
Including Cowen makes the offers a little bit better, but if the best you can offer is a 2009 draftee who was OK @ the NHL level then sustained a serious hip injury that he's yet to come back from, then it's still not really that close.
